Taste Flavor
info

Intensity
info
Wine body refers to the weight and texture of wine on the palate. In other words, it is the degree of body a wine has, ranging from light-bodied to full-bodied. Wines with higher body appear to have a thicker texture and can sometimes coat the palate.
Body
info
Wine acidity refers to the tartness of a wine, which gives a tingling sensation on the side of the tongue. A metallic-like sharp taste is also associated with high acidity. Sometimes a high level of sweetness, such as in luscious dessert wines, can disguise a high level of acidity. Acidity can range from soft to searing.
Acidity
info
Wine tannin gives wine its textural mouthfeel and astringency. Tannin is a natural compound found in grape skins, seeds, and stems. It contributes to the structure and helps to balance out the sweetness of the fruit. Tannins are usually discussed when it comes to red wines, even though some white and rosé wines with certain wine making techniques can also contain tannins.
